About the Program
The author follows Admiral Poindexter and his desire to increase surveillance to stop terror attacks. According to Harris, the Admiral's push for increased surveillance began with the bombing of the Marine barracks in Lebanon and continued past the World Trade Center attacks. But the resulting increase in surveillance has had no effect on terror attacks, Mr. Harris argues, it simply created a surveillance state against U.S. citizens instead of foreign terrorists. The event is at the Spy Museum in Washington.
